Help Bring the Light to IEEE Smart Villages
More than 984 million people have little or no access to electricity, especially in remote areas of the world. Without sufficient access to power, these communities continue a cycle of economic impoverishment.
IEEE Smart Village (ISV) seeks champions to lead fund-raising teams using crowdfunding. The campaign, called “Bring the Light,” allows small groups to establish reasonable fund-raising goals and then contribute on-line with one-time or monthly donations to IEEE Foundation.
